Festivals and Celebrations

30 Jul 2022 Once Only Event

If you LOVE Jazz? If you LOVE Blues? If you LOVE Billie Holiday? This show is for you.

Join us for a night that fills the room with the music of Lady Day.

Encapsulating the essence of Billie Holiday, Bonnie Lee Galea in her JAZZ in CHEEK Quartet paint a picture of her life with most memorable iconic jazz and blues songs from her time. Happy Blues & Sad Blues will feature just as Billie would say it was “depending on the mood I’m in at the time” is the way she would sing it!

In 1956 Critic Nat Hentoff, wrote “Lady’s sound – a texture simultaneously steel-edged and yet soft inside; a voice that was almost unbearably wise in disillusion and yet still childlike, again at the centre.”

A complete show of Billie Holiday with excerpts from Bonnie’s previous
